Press release: Wahoo Learning partner with Totara to meet the demands of the external training program

Published: 5th February 2020

Leading e-learning managed training service provider, Wahoo Learning has announced its new partnership with Totara to provide a new take on the delivery of training to external learners.

With over 20 years’ experience delivering managed learning services on behalf of leading global organisations, when it came to revamp their Learning Management System (LMS) Totara was the natural choice.

“Delivering a successful external training program comes with its own unique set of challenges, for which traditional internally focused Learning Management Systems are not best placed to solve” says Lloyd Smith, Wahoo Learning, Managing Director.

“We needed a solution that offers the advanced feature set expected of a modern day LMS, but with the flexibility to build in additional features required for the demanding external training market. Totara ticked both these boxes for us”

Aiming primarily at organisations that deliver external training programs, whether in a large partner network, franchise market, or direct to end-customers, Wahoo Learning brings together a unique set of services which allow these programs to get to market fast and with minimal effort.

Wahoo Learning, Enterprise Account Manager, James Donovan, says “The internal and compliance based training market is well served by many organisations offering services and solutions specific to this demand, but we have found that this is not the case for the external training and we believe this will be a large growth area as companies look to leverage existing customer opportunities through partner and channel programs.”

Totara Learn is one of the leading LMS’ available today and because of its open source nature, this allowed Wahoo Learning to develop a unique set of features that tailor it specifically to the demands of the external training market.

This includes:

  • A catalogue that showcases your training
  • Advanced e-commerce platform
  • Customizable discount codes
  • A content management system
  • Tailored organisational structures
  • Advanced reporting
  • Localization for system and training in over 100 languages

Wahoo Learning will be celebrating their new partnership with Totara and showcasing their LMS and bespoke e-learning content capabilities at the Learning Technologies exhibition on the 12th -13th February at Excel London. Come and meet them in Hall: N1-N6 Stand: F65.
